Personal Learning Networks for Educators: 10 Tips | Getting Smart - 8 views

  • All educators (and learners) can benefit from extending their own personal learning network online – beyond the walls of their schools, the boundaries of their districts, and the limits of their experience
  • My goal is for workshop participants to leave the session plugged into a global network of like-minded professionals, who will broaden their experience and challenge their thinking on an ongoing basis
  • Merely reading, listening, or watching is not connecting.

  • your willingness to reach out and make connections with new people
  • Among educators (and much of the world), Twitter is the most popular social microblogging tool.
  • Over time the connections and contributions you make online will evolve into conversations as others respond to you as well
  • In circles of educators who connect online, making a request is acceptable and welcome
  • blogs are still a powerful way for educators (and learners) to connect.
  • If you have something to share, post it online where it may be accessible and useful to others.
  • Social networks such as Classroom 2.0, however, are a great place to start with an exiting network (no need to follow, friend, or circle anyone) and with very little pressure to produce
  • Google’s new social network allows educators to group the people they follow into circles, such as personal and professiona
  • organize the people they follow into circles for specific subject areas, grade levels, or or even collaborative projects.
  • building a personal learning network doesn’t happen quickly
  • it is more important to be authentic in your online connections.
  • The more you reveal your humanity the more people will trust you, identify with you, and respond to your reflections and appeals.
  • “If your school system hasn’t changed a year from now, I get it… but if you haven’t changed a year from now, you’re a failure.”

Social Networking Sites: Too Much Information - 1 views

  • don’t put your safety or your future at risk.
  • the words and images you post on the Internet may be available for years
  • Sharing too much information on social networking sites can be problematic in two ways: first, it can reveal something about you that you’d rather your current or future employer or school administrator not know, and second, it can put your personal safety at risk
  • ...11 more annotations...
  • 38 percent of the time, this leads to rejections
  • if you mentioned on your resume that you volunteer in your community, can speak another language, or travel for work or pleasure—then “round out” your claim by backing it up online.
  • if you have expertise in a certain subject area, create an online “portfolio
  • the guiding principle should be the “grandmother test:
  • you should never have a password that uses the name of your pet, favorite band, hobby, birthday, or something else easily known about you
  • limit the publication of that data. Just change your settings
  • restrict the viewing of your profile only to users at your own college or to only your “friend” list
  • Don’t share things that would make you vulnerable to unwanted contact
  • make sure the combined information on their pages is not more than you would be comfortable with strangers knowing
  • once you publish something online, it is available to other people and to search engines. You can’t retract it
  • may have saved a copy

      It's social networking, but you invite the audience. No creepers, only those people you invite.
  •  
    Good for setting up a safe social networking location for students in a class. Students must be invited to join and you, as the instructor, are the only one to send out invites. Great for student blogging.

Web 2.0 tools in medical and nursing school curricula - 0 views

  • From the responses received to the surveys, it appears that Web 2.0 tools are slowly being introduced into the curricula of medical and nursing schools for a variety of uses. However, given the small sample size, it is difficult to predict whether the use of Web 2.0 tools portends a growing trend in education or merely represents a passing fad.
    • Anita Polacek
       
      I don't think it is a passing fad! We continue to add more tools each year!

Rule 1 -- The Core Rules of Netiquette -- Excerpted from Netiquette by Virginia Shea --... - 7 views

  • Would you say it to the person's face?

    • Shavonne Bauer
       
      How true this is. If you were communicating face to face would you do this? Always keep this in mind when on the Internet.
  • When you communicate through cyberspace -- via email or on discussion groups -- your words are written. And chances are they're stored somewhere where you have no control over them. In other words, there's a good chance they can come back to haunt you.
    • Shavonne Bauer
       
      In other words, be prepared to explain what you have written online.
    • Judy Barnicle
       
      how about the middle school teacher who got fired and his high school teacher friends who got disciplined for inappropriate jokes emailed
    • Dennis OConnor
       
      It's a good idea to assume that everything you write online is saved in a database somewhere and can be retrieved at any time by anyone. This includes course management systems!

  • Rule 1: Remember the human
  •  
    online etiquette
  •  
    Shea, the "network manners guru" and a student of human nature, reminds all online users to remember to use proper netiquette when conversing online. Her book is written for all users of the Internet. She states behind every computer screen is a human being. Unlike the computers they are working on, these human beings have feelings. She reminds people to remember this especially when conversing with one another through email. Unfortunately, she writes, since people are writing online they feel the right to say almost anything they wish without regard to the consequences when doing it through email. However, it is pointed out this is not an acceptable practice in the computer world. She provides a simple test to use each time an email is composed to check for proper netiquette - would this be said to another person's face? If the answer is yes, then it is safe to send. On the other hand, if the answer is no revising is necessary until the answer is yes. Her final concluding point reminds everyone what is written and sent remains a permanent record since it can be saved by someone, stored somewhere or forwarded thus saved forever. So remember, is this something you want remembered?

    "Classroom 2.0 is a free, community-supported network. We especially hope that those who are "beginners" will find this a supportive comfortable place to start being part of the digital dialog. "

    While this isn't is a Web 2.0 tool, it looks like it might be a helpful group for beginners like me. Living in Laos, I like how international the group looks. Does anyone else have suggestions of this kind of support group for beginners?

    Resources like Classroom 2.0 are what a lot of my "beginners" would benefit from. A community supported network aimed at easing one into the technology discussion and learning some cool resources along the way. I encourage teachers who want to find some level of comfort with technology to engage it through sites like Classroom 2.0

How To Develop A Facebook Page That Attracts Millions of Fans - 0 views

  • How To Develop A Facebook Page That Attracts Millions of Fans

    Posted by Nick O'Neill on March 11th, 2009 11:00 AM

    -Facebook Pages Icon-Over the past few years Facebook has witnessed a dramatic rise in new user adoption and with that rise has come the opportunity for brands to interact directly with existing customers and engage new ones. At the end of 2007, Facebook announced the launch of Facebook Pages and last week they launched a revised edition which includes a number of significant upgrades. This week, those pages will be going live for all. There are numerous ways for brands to leverage Facebook but the overall branded experience is becoming increasingly integrated into a single offering as the new Pages product highlights. So what are the primary benefits and changes for the new branded pages?

    Pages Are Profiles for Brands
    One of the primary reasons for launching Facebook Pages was that many companies were using user profiles for their companies, in turn violating Facebook’s terms of service. While I’m sure there were many other reasons for launching Pages, the easiest way to understand them is through viewing them as “Profiles for Brands”. This means brand pages can essentially do everything that users can do.
